Pop punk legends Green Day are back with their first album of new material in four years, and fans of the band in the U.K. rushed to make it No. 1 in the country with a sizable first-frame figure.&nbsp;

The group’s controversially-named new set Father of All Motherfuckers opens atop the U.K. albums tally this week with 23,000 equivalent units shifted.

Father of All Motherfuckers is Green Day’s fourth No. 1 full-length in the U.K., and it hasn’t been very long since they last ruled. The band first made it to the peak position in 2004 with the globally-adored project American Idiot, which brought them back to the forefront of rock and showed the world they weren’t done churning out hit after hit that the masses loved.

Their follow-up to that success, 21st Century Breakdown, also reached No. 1 on the chart. They missed the highest mark with a trio of subsequent titles (which were released as a three-part series), but they returned to the peak position with Revolution Radio.

Including compilations, live releases and proper studio efforts, Green Day has now appeared inside the top 10 on the U.K. albums ranking nine times.

Unlike many of their previous releases, Father of All Motherfuckers hasn’t yet spun off a hit single, and in fact, none of the tracks released ahead of the album’s debut made it to the all-genre songs list.

Green Day replaces another rock band at No. 1 on the albums chart, as last week’s champion, Blossoms’ Foolish Loving Spaces, dips outside the top 10 entirely to No. 11 in its second stint on the ranking.
